This being Super Bowl week in the United States, we want to post Whitney’s incredible performance of the National Anthem. This took place in January 1991 in Tampa Stadium in Florida. The game was between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants and took place during the height of the Gulf War. Her performance resonated with patriotism. No one has been able to come close. The song was released as a single several times – she was the first musical act to take it to Top Ten (#6) and have it certified platinum after 9/11.
